“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Most notable for its location and the fact that they serve alcohol on the boardwalk. Food is nothing special.

Love this place- Cuban and fried pickles are my favorite. Great location to people watch on the boardwalk.

“Bar food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

My husband and I wanted something to nibble on while we were in Wildwood on 9/13/2013 and this seemed to be as good as place as any, and we figured we'd have a drink. Being it was off season, the place was relatively quiet so we sat outside to people watch. They didn't have any decent bourbon so my hub just drank water and I had a couple beers. The service was super sloooowwwww.... We both ordered a bowl of clam chowder and were going to split the sampler which was wings, coconut shrip and some kind of eggrolls (I think). We kept joking that the waitress must have been digging up and shucking the clams for our chowder cause it took a LONG time to come out. It seemed the bar service was much faster as the few other patrons that were there seemed to be just drinking and the drinks came pretty fast and frequent. The chowder was really good! Lots of tender clams! The sampler was your basic frozen pickies you can buy by the bag full at Costco but not bad and it came with tasty dipping sauces. Prices were better than we thought considering we were ON the Boardwalk. Nothing historical but I'd go back.
